A Health Coach is a wellness professional whose main goal is to guide clients to reach their health and wellness goals (this can be related to sleep, energy, weight loss, stress, but sooo much more). Health Coaches create a safe space for their clients to explore their health, facilitating behavior and lifestyle change that can be sustained for the long-term.
Using both their nutrition and coaching education, Health Coaches help their clients discover which foods and lifestyle choices makes them feel their best. It’s a holistic approach, so it’s not just food and meal plans, but encompasses all areas of life that can both nourish and support overall wellbeing — career, spirituality, relationships, and environment.
Health Coaches can work with clients one-on-one or in group settings, or alongside other healthcare professionals such as medical doctors, chiropractors, therapists, and nurses. Health Coaches play a pivotal role in the greater healthcare team, filling the void that is often left by doctors who don’t necessarily have time to provide nutrition and coaching guidance.
Places you could work include doctor’s offices, gyms, private practice, wellness centers, in product creation and development, working with wellness brands, paid blogging, and more.
I completed my education at IIN (The Institute for Integrative Nutrition) and here’s why I still recommend them to this day
They created the field of health coaching. Like, actually created this entire thing, nearly 30 years ago. Since then, they have become the world’s largest health coaching and nutrition school, with over 100,000 students and graduates in 155 countries.
I also love the holistic approach to health and wellbeing, teaching you that it’s not just about the food on your plate, but also how you nourish yourself through other areas of your life, such as your relationships, career, physical activity, and spirituality. The curriculum focuses on Nutrition, Coaching and Business, and students learn from more than 85 of the world’s leading experts in integrative health, public health, nutrition, business, and coaching; from functional medicine physicians to spiritual leaders including Deepak Chopra, M.D., Mark Hyman, M.D., Andrew Weil, M.D., Gabrielle Bernstein, and more.
Furthermore, they are a vocational school, which means you’ll receive a high-caliber education that you can apply to your life and your work, whether you’re located in the U.S. or anywhere else in the world. The curriculum is held to the highest standards and is regularly reviewed by the New York State Department of Education and your certificate is worth up to 29 college credits towards a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or doctorate degree at participating institutions.

If you’ve already received your education, and need help developing or tweaking your business –
My first career was 10 years in Marketing and Advertising, working on visuals, copywriting and strategy to be able to, well, sell something (that did not belong to me). I have since been using those valuable skills to sell myself and my offerings and I would love to help you do the same!
The last few years, I have been supporting coaches and wellness professionals as they navigate their new career in this field, or work through a totally different approach to what they are doing.
When we work together – we will look at your brand (how it looks, feels, sounds), your audience, your marketing, your offering – and determine if it is all making sense.
If you are having trouble understanding how to make TIME for your business – we will work on that.
If you are having trouble figuring out how to make MONEY with your business – we will work on all of the different ways that make sense for you to monetize what you are doing.
If this sounds like exactly what you need – email me to get scheduled. Length of time and investment is determined based on your need. I don’t like to waste anyone’s money with cookie cutter programs. Let’s talk!
